Dr Erickson is incompetent. She misdiagnosed me and I had to go to Boston to find out what was wrong. I am sure there are many of her patients who hve paid the ultimate price.

Rude, arrogant, and condescending. I would never recommend her to anyone. If we have to go back for more treatment, she will not be an option. I will rate her honestly and fairly, but as a supposed compassionate caregiver, she needs serious improvement. She makes us feel like she's in it just for the money (which she gets PLENTY of).

I have had just one visit with Dr. Erickson but my mother-in-law was her patient in 1999 and she treated my husband from 2005-2011. I have the highest regard for her and am grateful that she is available for me.
